There are several long and short walks in Seychelles with several trails that will take you through the coastline with its panoramic views and tropical forests. Popular hikes include the Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve Walk between La Digue and Praslin islands and Mahé Island’s Morne Seychellois National Park Anse Major Trail.
8. Relax in La Digue Island
The laid-back small island of La Digue will make you feel as if you travel back in time with people using their bicycles as the main means of transport. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture photos of Anse Source d’Argent Beach which has the world’s most beautiful coral reefs and white sand.
9. Discover Cousin Island’s Nature Reserve
A crucial nature reserve and seabird sanctuary, Cousin Island is located west of Praslin Island which you can visit during a day trip from Praslin or Mahé islands. But an overnight stay is the best way to explore the area.
